This is the perfect recipe of romance in the summer sun.  This is a story that has all the feels, from family saga to grief and forgiveness, to friendship and second chances. Sydney Flynn returns to Firefly Beach to work through the challenges that life has dealt her.  Firefly beach has always been a safe haven and a place for Sydney to find herself and the path she needs to be on.  As Sydney and Nate reconcile, the author paints such a picture of the characters, that it pulls out a spirit of compassion from the reader.

So, just when you think this series can’t get any better, Jenny Hale proves you wrong.  I absolutely loved this book. It immediately pulls you into the sand and the surf. This is such a page turner, I couldn’t put it down. I loved the flow of this story, the romance is as warm and toasty as the summer sun.  I feel as if Sydney and Nate are close personal friends that I would want to hang out at the beach with. I highly recommend this book and all books by this author, I promise you will be hooked.

For Sydney Flynn, her treasured family home, Starlight Cottage, is her sanctuary. The house on the white sands of Firefly Beach, surrounded by glittering turquoise waters, is the perfect place for her fresh start. That’s until her knees almost buckle at the sight of Nate Henderson.

As teenagers, Sydney and Nate whispered sweet nothings and promised “forever” to each other. Sydney thought they were perfect. She never imagined that her childhood sweetheart was going to end things out of the blue and with no explanation, ruthlessly driving away from her and never looking back. She has spent the last decade piecing herself back together, and trying to figure out exactly what went wrong.

And now the man who ripped apart her heart is back. The down-to-earth son of a fisherman she used to know, forever in beach t-shirts and flip flops, is well and truly gone – in his place is a successful songwriter in a swanky designer suit who’s totally out of place in the small town she calls home.

All of a sudden, Nate wants to make it up to Sydney, yet how can she find it in her heart to forgive him? But when a new development threatens her beloved Starlight Cottage, Sydney needs all the help she can get, and her plan of avoiding Nate is suddenly impossible. Can they overcome their past to save Firefly Beach and the house that holds so many memories for them? Or will the town they adore, and the love they had for one another, be lost forever?
